The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their Friday practice ahead of Sunday’s home game against the Dallas Cowboys and their final injury report for Week 10 shows that four players have been ruled out for that contest.
After failing to practice all week due to injuries, running back DeAngelo Williams (knee), wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) and safety Jordan Dangerfield (groin) were officially ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.
Williams is expected to miss multiple games moving forward after having surgery this week on one of his knees that has given him problems for several weeks now. Heyward-Bey and Dangerfield are both likely week-to-week moving forward. Both were injured in the Steelers loss to the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday.
Also ruled out on Friday for the Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton (shoulder), who was added to the injury report on Thursday as a limited participant in practice, obviously re-injured his shoulder this week and will now miss his sixth game of the season as a result.
With Wheaton and Heyward-Bey both ruled out, the Steelers will likely only dress four wide receivers Sunday against the Cowboys.
After failing to practice on Wednesday and Thursday, center Maurkice Pouncey (thumb) reportedly took every snap during the team’s Friday practice and still expects to play Sunday against the Cowboys. Pouncey had surgery earlier in the week to repair the dislocated thumb that he suffered last Sunday against the Ravens. He was removed from the teams injury report on Friday.
Also removed from the injury report on Friday were wide receiver Sammie Coates (finger) and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee). Coates, who was limited on Wednesday, practiced fully on Thursday and Friday. Roethlisberger, on the other hand practiced fully all three days this week.
